New releases 02/02/18


#1

I’m kicking off with S>>D’s Co Intel Pro. Released by CPU which is pretty much the biggest guarantee that I will enjoy an album. So far it’s an enjoyable slab of old-school IDM.

Whatcha listening to, DiS?


#2

Efrim Manuel Menuck (‘frontperson’ of GY!BE) put out his second solo record today, Pissing Stars
What little I’ve listened to sounds great—going to listen to it in earnest later


#3

I’ve generally found I like the music released by that label, or whatever it is that links all those artists with that binary.triangle artwork, so I’ll certainly give that a listen.

New The Soft Moon will be getting a spin and I’ve listened, albeit at low volumes, to and been impressed by the new Hookworms album

I think JT’s album might well be out too?


#4

looking forward to listening to hookworms and field music later, got Palm on right now

inventive, knotty, hooky pop rock


#5

Poppy Ackroyd for me.


#6

Hookworms LP is great. Got Field Music lined up, Anna Burch and the aforementioned Elfrim Manuel Menuck after that too.


#7

New soft moon, sweet I’ll be checking that out


#8

I’ve been really loving the hookworms record


#9

really enjoyed my first listen. I see what @Severed799 (I think?) was saying about him going pretty full Trent, but that’s fine by me.


#10

just came across this on acloserlisten.com
sounds very nice indeed thus far


#11

New Soft Moon feeling a little bit like more of the same so far. Might only reveal itself with a proper loud listen rather than with headphones at office levels.


#12

Just blasted through the Bat Fangs album which is bloody terrific! For fans of those Ex Hex & Wild Flag records:

Also got Field Music and Hookworms queued up.


#13

Cheers for the heads-up - I never knew that was coming!


#14

Aye ‘twas me, it’s still a great sounding record so he just about gets away with it but it is pretty obvious ha


#15

Yeeeep Hookworms is awesome!


#16

New Hanne Kolstø out today - got it lined up to play later, but judging by the song titles it’s another Norwegian-language one. Love all her stuff but harder to engage with when I don’t know what the fuck she’s singing about.

This is good - expansive, space-y IDM


#18

Poppy Ackroyd is really quite interesting, her name almost put me off, reeking as it does of privilege. Only thing is, it feels a bit ‘BBC Drama’.

Phobophobes is quite good also, not very new though given that eight(!) of the twelve tracks have previously been released.

Saving Field Music for later.


#19

Hookworms vinyl was dispatched from Norman Records yesterday so will be checking that out tomorrow (hopefully) and the new Soft Moon album.

I may check out the new Let’s Eat Grandma record, not that I’ve returned to the debut a great deal.


#20

Is it not just a Let’s Eat Grandma single? Produced by SOPHIE, quite enjoying it.
